Notes:

  1. Sangoma supports the use of other IP phones than its brand. You will need to purchase the 3rd party phone support option to receive onboarding support for these devices. The 3rd party phone support option enables the End-Point Manager module of PBXact and provides ready to use templates to provision phones. Please review our supported list from here https://wiki.sangoma.com/display/FPG/EPM-Supported+Devices.
  2. We include in our service inbound routes, outbound routes, Time of Day routing schedules, IVR, extensions, Zulu. Anything outside will be dealt on a case by case basis and needs to be discussed with your onboarding engineer. Advanced services may require the purchase of professional services hours.
  3. We do not take responsibility of designing the customer's LAN and WAN network. But because this design is critical for overall voice quality of your system, we will help you point out areas for improvement if required.
  4. This service is not an 'on the fly' service by just calling in and performing open ended support sessions. We respect your time and we want to make this process as efficient as possible for everyone. This is the reason there are questionnaires and scheduled calls. We expect you to provide the information in a timely manner and to show up on scheduled calls on time or help us reschedule - just as you would expect us to do the same.
  5. The whole process of onboarding will be carried through a single support ticket. Typically, we leave the ticket open for about 30 days following the Activation Call. After that time, customers with support requests will have to use our ongoing tech support process.
